Wizards Cut Devon Dotson, Michael Foster Jr.

The Wizards announced a pair of roster cuts overnight, waiving guard Devon Dotson and forward Michael Foster Jr. (Twitter link).

Both moves had been anticipated. Dotson and Foster signed Exhibit 10 contracts with the club and are expected to report to the Capital City Go-Go, Washington’s G League affiliate. Spending at least 60 days with the Go-Go would ensure they receive bonuses worth up to $75K.

Foster, 20, averaged 13.6 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks in 24.3 minutes per contest in 41 appearances last season for the Delaware Blue Coats, posting a shooting line of .519/.254/.693. He continued to play a rotation role for the club en route to its NBAGL championship in the spring, then had his rights traded to the Go-Go earlier this month.

Dotson, 24, has appeared in 28 games over three seasons with the Bulls and Wizards, holding modest averages of 2.0 PPG and 1.1 APG in 6.7 MPG. Last season, the former Kansas star spent a couple of months on a two-way deal with Washington, having been waived in January. While he only appeared in six games for the Wizards in 2022/23, Dotson had a solid regular season showing for the Go-Go, averaging 14.8 PPG, 6.1 APG, 4.4 RPG and 1.2 SPG on .529/.392/.814 shooting in 29 games (31.7 MPG).

The Wizards now have 19 players under contract — 17 with guaranteed salaries and a pair on two-way contracts.
